Interface specializes in less is more. The company uses fewer resources and constantly strives to use more sustainable flooring solutions. The company introduced TacTiles, which are a glue-free installation system. TacTiles adheres carpet tiles to one another to create a “floating” floor, which provides better flexibility. The company also created Cool Carpet, which is their climate-neutral carpet tile program. This program zeros out all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the entire life cycle of the carpet tile. Interface also has Intersept, which is a powerful preservative that is safe and effective at protecting carpet tile from mold growth and odors. In addition, the company uses ART, their proprietary Appearance Retention Test that effectively stimulates years of soiling, wear, and routine maintenance to test the durability of their carpet tiles.
Interface focuses on a business model that is renewable, cyclical, and benign. The company focuses on new technologies and systems that reduce or eliminate waste and harmful emissions. They also increase the use of renewable materials and energy sources. The company’s Mission Zero promise is to eliminate any negative impact the company has on the environment by 2020.

COREtec RCB (Rigid Core Board) and COREtec WPC (Waterproof Composite Core) from US Floors are great products with many similarities, but they both differ in terms of applications. The Rigid Core Board and Waterproof Composite Core flooring are both 100% waterproof and structurally stable. Both COREte products have a wide variety of stylish decors and textures. The Rigid Core Board and Waterproof Composite Core flooring from US Floors are easy to install. In addition, these products do not require acclimation. However, the products do differ in terms of applications. They each suit a specific type of installation.
Commercial or Residential Application?
The COREtec Pro Plus from US Floors is a high-density rigid core flooring. This product was developed to withstand high impact and resist indentation. The high mineral content and dense core are what make this product able to withstand such conditions. COREtec Pro Plus works well in a mudroom or basement. However, this product works better in commercial settings such as boutiques, retail shops, offices, and more. This product with the rigid core board is really made for locations with high traffic loads.
Although COREtec Plus, which is a WPC (Waterproof Composite Core) flooring, is used in some moderate commercial environments, it is really suited for residential use. When US Floors manufactures COREtec Plus, they add a foaming agent to the flooring that creates tiny air pockets throughout the planks. These tiny air pockets improve sound quality, insulation, and cushion underfoot. This WPC core is combined with a thick luxury vinyl top layer and a cork underlayment, which creates a comfortable floor for any home.
Flooring for Every Installation Type
Overall, both COREtec with Rigid Core Board and Waterproof Composite Core offer features and benefits to a large variety of installation options. Customer preference, fashion, design, and installation budget are the main determining factors when purchasing this product for your application.
